About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 14-16)

Hi! So glad you stopped by! 2 quick items

1. Please email me so that I can send you a website with a TON of photos and more details!

2. Please check our calendar first, it is always up to date.

The hot tub is up and running through the winter, but the pool opens on April 15, 2016 and closes September 30, 2016. Please also know that the pool does have a salt system instead of a traditional chlorine system. Salt systems are equally effective and much kinder on eyes, skin and clothes. The pool is not heated.

Starting May 1, 2016, we are Sunday to Sunday only until September 30th.

Please email for rates and information. We are a NOT a rental agency, we are the actual house owners. You WILL receive a rapid response! Also, please go to our website link below, and click on Photos & Amenities. You'll see more shots of our bedrooms and interior, as well as hear about things like free towel and linen service - which is included in EVERY rental!


Duck Tape is a fantastic, family-friendly, pet-friendly beach house that truly has it all: one of the largest private pools you'll find anywhere in Duck (and a huge pool deck for easy entertaining), a private hot tub (on it's own deck level, with open, starlight views), a wraparound deck, gorgeous, clean interiors, FREE internet, FREE long distance, and a media center that boasts a 42' flat panel TV with DVD, VCR and surround sound.

The inside of the home has a 'cottage' feel to it, comes with a gourmet-equipped kitchen, and is beautifully decorated and clean. With 5 bedrooms, spacious decking areas full of lounging nooks, a host of features and amenities, this home is ideal for an extended family with children of all. We replace pillows, sheets and towels on an annual basis, and professionally shampoo the carpets several times per year.

The street that this home is on is a quiet road, less than 1 mile long between the Sound and the beach, and right in the middle of the town of Duck. It's an easy, 5 minute walk to the heartbeat of Duck and the boardwalk shops - where you will find some of the best shopping and dining in Duck!

*** EMAIL ME FOR A WEBSITE FULL OF PHOTOS~ I have a website with a full listing of bedrooms, more photos, activities, virtual tours, restaurants and activities so you can plan your vacation accordingly. We spend a lot of the off-season in Duck, so we can give you an 'insider's view'!

The short walk to the beach (~200 yards) makes it easy to hop back and forth between beach and house in case you've forgotten something, or in case you prefer the pool over the ocean.

Duck Tape is designed to make a week at the beach a well-deserved, peaceful, and easy vacation spot. Come and relax in this terrific home, perfectly located between the beach, the shops, restaurants, and galleries of Duck. This is definitely the Outer Banks family vacation getaway that you are looking for.

Ok, so what are the top 5 things to know about us?:
- We are pet-friendly
- We are a Sunday-Sunday rental
- Without traffic, it is 1 hr 15 minutes from Norfolk airport, and 4.5 hours from DC Metro area
- Every rental INCLUDES cleaning, towel and linen service
- We prefer to rent to families

********************OFFSEASON GETAWAY SPECIALS!!*****************
From October 18th, 2016 until April 3, 2017 we are offering DEEP DISCOUNT GETAWAY SPECIALS, email us for more details and a custom quote. Please note - these specials are not valid for the weeks of Thanksgiving or Christmas/New Year's Eve. For both Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year stays - we will only rent by the week (or longer).

Nearest Airport
Norfolk

Town of Duck has a 10 acre property that was just built in 2007. It contains an amphitheatre, covered picnic area, playground, and 1 mile boardwalk along the sound. This house is within easy walking distance to this great feature. In addition, this property is perfectly situated between the beach, and the town - making it easy to walk everywhere! There are also plenty of pool toys, beach chairs, rafts and boogie boards at your disposal!

 

Owner info

About the owner: My family has been vacationing in the Outer Banks for almost 15 years. It's our second home, our place to unwind and reconnect - with ourselves and with each other. We love this house, and this location. Just a short 1 minute walk to the beach AND a quick 5 minute walk to town.

Why the Owner Chose Duck, NC, USA:
I love waking up at 5:30, grabbing a cup of coffee, and meandering down (a 1 minute walk) to the beach and seeing the sun rise. I also love being able to walk (5 minutes) into town and eating or shopping. Really, this house is in the PERFECT location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Imagine this when you arrive: - Beds made for you when you arrive (no fussing with linens after a long drive!) - A refreshing dip in our pool that has NO chlorine (we use a salt chlorinator, no stinging eyes!) - A bottle of wine under the stars in our hot tub that can seat 6-8, with FOOT JETS! It's all about relax, relax, relax...
